This is one of the first mutli looper delay pedals from Boss. This pedal would allow you to record multiple samples and play over them with the delay function. this pedal was made only for one year and though they did make a lot of them they just didn't catch on. They seem to be a bit confusing to people as there was a lot of modes and functions written on the front and just wasn't a plug and play item. You really had to go over the manual and understand how this pedal worked and what all the functions meant and how they could be used in a live setting.



Controls: E.Level, F.Back, Delay Time, 4-way Mode switch
Connectors: Input, Trig. In, Output, AC Adaptor
Current Draw: 55 mA (DC 9V)
Delay Time: 50 to 200ms in S Mode, 200 to 800ms in L mode
PCM System: 12-bit plus analog logarithm compression
Sampling mode:
Frequency Response: Sample/Delay 40Hz to 7kHz (+1/-3 dB), Direct 10Hz to 60kHz (+1/-3 dB)
Recommended AC Adaptor: PSA Series


There are two delays setting in this pedal S mode did small delay repeats from about 50 to 200 ms. Where the L mode did repeats from 200 to 800 ms. The pedal does sound good if you like the Boss DD-2. This would be one of Boss's most famous pedals and best digital delay to date. These two pedals shared the same internal circuitry chip which gives them the same basic tone for the delays. So if you are a fan as I am of the Boss DD-2 then you would like this pedal. If you don't want to spend the money on a Boss DD-2 which fetch more money that these pedals then you can go for this one is you are using the basic delay functions.


These pedals were only around for about one year. You can still find them in the classifieds and on ebay all day long. They usually fetch about $110 to $120. Some for more if they can get it but the average is right around there. I would recommend this to anyone who wants the tone of a Boss DD_2 and also the looper function. Its a good pedal fro someone who likes recording live and playing over that recorded riff.
